Now that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has resigned, many are asking if Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will share the same fate.
It has been a tumultuous last few months for Johnson, who has been repeatedly dogged by scandal after scandal while in power.
Earlier this week, the governing Tories saw numerous high-profile resignations, including 50 ministers and parliamentary aides abandoning ship.
While announcing his resignation, Johnson told the nation he would stay on until a new Conservative Party leader was chosen.
“The process of choosing that new leader should begin now. And today, I have appointed a cabinet to serve, as I will until a new leader is in place,” said Johnson.
“I know that there will be many people who are relieved and perhaps quite a few who will also be disappointed. And I want you to know how sad I am to be giving up the best job in the world.”
There are many similarities between Johnson’s predicament and Trudeau’s current status in the House of Commons.
Like Johnson, Trudeau has faced scandal after scandal, with the most recent incident involving RCMP commissioner Brenda Lucki who is accused of trying to interfere in the investigation of the Nova Scotia mass shooting.
The scandal that seemed to be the final nail in the coffin for Johnson was his appointment of MP Chris Pincher as deputy chief whip despite knowing that he was accused of groping two men.
Not only has Trudeau himself been accused of groping a reporter in 2000, but his cabinet was also plagued with allegations that former defence minister Harjit Sajjan was aware of sexual misconduct allegations made against chief military brass.
Conservative MP and deputy shadow minister Tako van Popta took to Twitter to argue that “changes can be made” to the government, citing Johnson’s resignation.
Others, including the advocacy group Canada Proud, asked Canadians whether they think Trudeau should be removed from office like Johnson.
